Some tracks it's very easy to hear the garbage results of said DRC (Skyscraper much!!!) and others make you wonder if the DRC is even active. (Sure enough it always is on any TrueHD/Atmos track)

Seriously, it won’t let you ever disengage it for any TrueHD/Atmoa tracks!!!??? That’s like WAY messed up! Defaulting to this is bad enough, but then not being able to disengage it, wow!
I couldn’t handle that, it can really mess up the bass and overall dynamics in a track, some worse than others though like you say.
On mine (Denon 6300H), once I change it to ‘off’ for a DolbyTrueHD or Atmos track, then it remembers and stays like that next time and forever it seems, UNLESS I accidentally use one of the quick select inputs on the remote or reset to defaults. Even running Audy again (through the Editors app anyway, although it does try to default DEQ to ON, but I turn it off in the app and it remembers it if I upload a new curve) it doesn’t default back to it to ‘ON’.
Dang man, all this time in our chats, I didn’t realize you were dealing with this.
‘Auto’ doesn’t seem to be as bad as ‘ON”, but I still don’t like it. I’ll check every so often just to make sure it doesn’t get set back to Auto or On though. With my old Onkyo 5010, I’d have to go in a set it to ‘off’ every time I watched a Dolby track and it fixed it for ALL dolby's for that session until I turned the AVR off and back on again, then I’d have to do it again. Drove me nuts!!
With the new Denon, I was used to having to do that every time on my Onk, but now the Denon just remembers which is nice, but took me a while to get used to it. Yay, so much better not having to mess with that every time.
Dang bro, hope you can get into a new unit pretty soon.
